Build a timeline of the news about the brazilian protests. The web-based app will aggregate news from different brazilian sources since the first protests in March, 2013.
The protests in Brazil began as public manifestations against the increases for transportation fares in a few cities. The demonstrations gradually grew to a national level, turning into the largest popular movement since the president’s impeachment in 1992. The demands of the movement also changed to include a larger scope of problems to fight against: corruption, police brutality, lack of basic infrastructure etc The media coverage during this process has changed from time to time — and also depending on specific companies — with contradictory opinions.
Besides documenting the news coverage of this event, my intention is to draw comparisons between different companies and periods. By analysing similarities and keywords, I plan to position the headlines opposed or close to each other.
